Who would benefit from teaching the children and replacing true Biblical heroes with outlandish fictional, artificial super heroes to follow and admire? As strong as the recent push is, to make our children addicted to fictional characters, there has to be a calculated determination to subvert their souls.
We can pray for the little ones and their parents that the influence can be removed before lasting damage is done. A treehouse out back might look extravagant, but that could be what a daddy used to spend time with his son teaching him carpentry and industry and to have an interest in something besides sitting around inside the house imagining battles or begging for computer time. If the parents are aware of the risks, hopefully the Lord can use them to teach vanities out of the kids. If not, then we need to pray for the parents too!
- But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea (Matt. 18:6).
- Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones (Luke 17:1-2).
Note the following excerpt from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superhero
A superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a type of fictional stock character possessing extraordinary or superhuman powers and dedicated to protecting the public. A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine (also rendered super-heroine or super heroine).
While the word “superhero” itself dates to at least 1917, the term “Super Heroes” is a typography-independent ‘descriptive’ USA trademark which is co-owned by DC Comics and Marvel Characters, Inc.
By most definitions, characters do not strictly require actual superhuman powers to be deemed superheroes, although terms such as costumed crime fighters or masked vigilantes are sometimes used to refer to those such as Batman and Green Arrow without such powers who share other superhero traits. Such characters were generally referred to as “mystery men” in the Golden Age of Comic Books to distinguish them from characters with super-powers.
Some superheroes supposedly use their powers to counter day-to-day crime while also combating threats against humanity by supervillains, their criminal counterparts. Often, one of these super villains will be the superhero’s archenemy. As well, some long-running superheroes, such as Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and Iron Man, have a rogues gallery of enemies. As well, superheroes sometimes will combat such threats as aliens, magical entities, American war enemies such as Nazism or Communism, and godlike or demonic creatures.
Can this be the real intent, when they themselves are transplanting Satanic principles where Christian morals should be?
